Fall Mantel ... Wicker basket, bottles, Pumpkins, Crock

Featured by: Mrs. Hines Class. 
thanks Sharon

Not yet November and I have changed my mantel three times. 
I love to display this lovely picture for the Fall season. I picked objects with the colors that are in the picture to decorate our Mantel.

Grapevine pumpkins ... wicker woven bottles and vintage splint oak market basket.

I decided the mantel needed a little more so I swiped the grapevine and my garland of painter's dropcloth leaves from my Fall table and used it here. Tutorial can be seen HERE 

(Now I have an excuse to do another table decoration).

Sitting atop my little red wagon, is the lighted Palm tree leaf pumpkin that I made ... see the inspiration tutorial here, Karah is one crafty lady. Check her out. The Space Between
I did make another Palm leaf pumpkin and my tutorial can be seen here ...  

  The large vintage splint oak basket on the left was recently purchased at Find's Thrift Store for $5.00 ... a very good buy. I have several of these and was happy to add it to my collection. 

The yellow painted crock on the right was purchased off eBay years ago for $12.00 ... unbelievable good deal. 
It is one of my favorite crocks.

This little guy is always happy to be part of the hearth decoration.

  1. Another great mantel, Audrey. The vase/crock from ebay was a great price and what patina. I love your palm pumpkin and the distressed little wagon.

  2. Love your mantel! The wagon and the leaf garland are my favorite parts !

  3. I came over to see your mantel, but kept reading down to the tutorial on the palm frond pumpkin. What a job, but it turned out great. I love it in the wagon on the mantel with that beautiful crock.

  4. LOVE that clock and those grapevine pumpkins are fabulous! Beautiful mantel.


  5. I'm in love with that little wagon! I find that I take a long time to look at your table settings and mantels because I want to really see each detail. I think it's because it's more of an artistic grouping of loved objects than a 'look'. Beautiful! ~ Maureen

  6. Gosh, girl, you sure are good at this mantel business. Every time you do a new "mantel doo", it is prettier than the last...:))
    Love it.
